Yes, the OS is supposed to send a signal when the limit is reached and Guile handles it and throws an exception. So the test just catches that a few times and then ends.
We looked at this over IRC and it seems OS X simply ignores these limits. There are complaints about it all over the web. If you hadn't stopped the process it would have started to eat swap space and eventually take down your machine.
For the time being these tests are disabled in master (http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=guile.git;a=commitdiff;h=9687334ff52a2def369e7abb8563401351db9be7).
Thanks for bringing this up. I use Guile on OS X but I hadn't run make check for a while.
